Black History Month 2015

The British Civil Rights Movement: 1963 and beyond

Learning for all

Our programmes are suitable for a variety of age groups and contexts, schools, colleges, community groups, prisons, and workplaces. Programmes are tailored to your needs and requirements and priced accordingly.

This Black History Month we are giving participants an opportunity to learn about Britain’s forgotten civil rights activists. From the Bristol Bus Boycott to the Battle of Lewisham; from the Race Riots of the early eighties to the Black People’s Day of Action, how have Britons worked together to affect change? Using theatre, poetry and original source material, participants will engage in these histories, discuss their impact on the present and create their own pieces of drama inspired by the learning.

We can also create a bespoke programme for you on a variety of subjects, including migration and concepts of home or Black British performance from 1807 to today.
